To the Men and Women In Uniform: Thank You

Thank you for aiming your weapons and pulling the trigger

On those who want to take your life and the life of another

Thank you.

 

While everyone else is throwing shits left and right at you,

While everyone else is judging you,

For doing what you do

For doing what you did

I offer my heartfelt gratitude for doing what you do.

 

I love my work and I appreciate that you love yours too

Despite the danger of everyday existence

Where a foot dangles on your grave ready to take you in.

Despite of the thought that today may be your last day

To feel the love of your sons and daughters

To feel the loving care of your significant other.

Despite of the agonizing thought that the beautiful world as it is

Will remember you with prayers and flowers on your grave…

Thank you for protecting our sovereignty,

Thank you for taking a stand

By never letting the evil ones trample our right to live in peace and harmony

Thank you for taking a bullet in exchange of peace

Thank you for protecting us from mindless whackos

Who are dedicated to wreaking havoc in our society.

Thank you for aiming your weapons and pulling the trigger

On those who want to take your life and the life of another

Even though I believe it is only God who can take the life that He gave

I believe God also mandated you to protect the ones you love and care about

By any means necessary

Against those who sow fear

Against those who live in hatred

Against those who wish to see you 6 feet under.

 

I dedicate this to the armed personnel protecting our right to live in peace.

 

Thank you for laying down your life

To ensure that there’s peace and order

For our sons and daughters.

 

Thank you.

Author: The Romantic Alpha

Aside from physical and intellectual strength, a man is also given a heart to feel and share love and value. Dive into the mind of the alpha, feel his heart beat, and let me carry you with my strong yet gentle hands. I'm continuously innovating myself to be a better man, husband, father, friend, and structural engineer. Love's not overrated. The world needs the true essence of which.

  1. I actually have one post back then noting that one of the SAF 44 was a friend back in college. nagulat na lang ako na may common friend na nagpost about it. dun ko lang nalaman na kakilala ko pala yung isang namatay sa SAF. 😦
